What makes laser scanning highly popular is the fact that it offers all the advantages of traditional surveying methods at a fraction of the cost. Laser surveying offers mainly 3 benefits compared to the traditional method. It shortens the surveying process, requires less materials of the surveyor and it provides data to clients, which can be repurposed without the help of the surveyor. Polygon mesh models, Surface models, CAD models etc. can be easily edited to customize your plans as required.
Laser scanning is preferred nowadays by various organizations for the sheer simplicity it brings to the surveying process. Engineering and construction sector are considered as two industries where laser scanning has had a huge impact in which spatial data gathering is a daily necessity. This is evident, especially in oil and gas industry, where all the planning/surveying of pipelines, is done by laser scanning.
Applications in Oil and Gas industry
The services offered under pipeline surveying generally falls into three categories - Aerial surveying, Land surveying and construction staking, and subsurface utilities engineering. The major scanning services associated with each of these areas are as follows.
This includes surveying associated with pipelines, like digital terrain modeling, contour mapping, high altitude route selection imagery, low altitude engineering design industry, HCA study imagery, planning and profiling sheets and FERC support exhibits.
Land surveying and Construction Staking
Construction staking, planning and profiling sheets, well location staking, boundary surveying, right of way easements, preliminary center line and alignment staking services/applications are the services offered under land surveying and construction staking.
Subsurface Utilities Engineering
This includes services/applications for subsurface utilities engineering like CAD files preparation, non-destructive vacuum excavations, utility location and utility marking, relocation plans for utilities and visible surfaces feature surveys.
